Run your own small recording studio in the basement – which was until a few years ago unthinkable, is now at hobby musicians alive and well. The huge prices that were charged for studio time and equipment, are now comfortable software solutions yielded. But how do I do if I want to build a recording studio? What equipment should I buy myself and what I should look for when buying? For those interested on the website building a recording studio and all the components explained in detail. First, you should be aware of their budget and then make sense of this divide on the components. The heart of a recording studio is a powerful computer.
Do not make the mistake at this point to save, because the music-production is a computationally intensive process and you will regret it when their computer goes to the opening of the third software sampler in the knee. Your computer should be equipped with a sound card, designed for music production, recording a so-called card. In computer standard integrated sound cards range in most cases, unfortunately not. The A / D converter which converts analog signals into digital and vice versa, is the essential element in the sound card. Between sound cards, there are significant differences in the quality and bit resolution the maximum sampling rate of the converter.
They also differ in the noise behavior in the response, the computer-internal shielding from interference and the maximum number of channels. Manufacturer of professional sound cards, for example, Dididesign, MOTU, RME, and Creative. Check with the manufacturers of the latest offers. In each studio is a sequencer program needs, a software for recording, editing and playback of music. The market leader in this segment are Apple with the sequencer, Logic Audio and Steinberg Cubase. For beginners there are free sequencer programs such as Logic Fun. Even in the choice of speakers, there are several things to consider. During the mixing of music it is important that all frequencies are clearly audible. The Speakers may not use the music to a sonic mush “zusammenmatschen” so that a reasonable mix is no longer possible. Moreover, the size of the speakers to be matched to the room size of the recording studio. Make sure that the speaker and amplifier fit into power and impedance values to each other. To complete the studio can not items such as microphone, mixer, amplifier, synthesizer or effect unit is integrated. Depending on requirements, the studio also be expanded later as required.
